Increase number of labels allowed
I have hit my limit for labels at 20. That seems like a rather small number to me. Could ProtonMail increase that number?
This will come with premium accounts!
Are Premium accounts the same thing as free accounts?
BTW It's 2020 now - the last "planned" date was 2015...
Why is the number of labels rationed on a free account?
A few labels can't stress the mail servers overmuch!
I've got used to using labels, instead of a hierarchy of folders.
However, assigning multiple labels to a message doesn't work well (as they hide each other)
50 labels, ideally allocated hierarchally (so the same same name can have two different meanings) would be very nice to have.
I've only reached a limit of about 15 labels, so far - but I definitely need another 10 shortly.
20 Labels is much too few. I am having to double up on companies, correspondents. Is it really such a big deal to increase the limit to say 50. Very few people will be satisfied by 20.

I don't understand why the maximum number of labels is so small. An infinite number is absurd, of course, but the current maximum sure comes as an unpleasant surprise...as of today. Why not have, e.g., 100 labels free and charge for the next 100? I like to organize my emails and the current maximum forces me to go to GMAIL OR OUTLOOK!! I had no idea there was a maximum and will have to forward all those that do not fit under a specific label to GMAIL OR OUTLOOK.
If increasing the number of labels is off the table, why not a warning that there is currently a maximum number of emails obviating the shock of a low current maximum?
Labels and FILTERS are appropriate. I would love to have filter that make certain emails go directly to specified folders. Thanks.
It was an unpleasant surprise for me when I hit the label limit. It's not like it occupies space or anything, it's just metadata. So why this arbitrary restriction? Please increase it to 9999999.
20 labels is indeed a small number. Also, the abilty to create sub-labels or nested labels would be greatly appreciated.
I have to have the ability to create as many labels as I need for protonmail to become my primary email service.

I use labels a lot to organize my emails. I need to create hundreads of labels or I would have to stay on Gmail.
Please let users create as much labels as they need.
